Rise Above the Negativity of Others

posted by Guy Finley

Question: Without reverting to their lower level, how do you get people to stop making their hurtful, cut-down remarks?

Answer: One of the reasons people pounce on or attack us the way they do, is that they are feeding off of us in many different ways, especially when we return a negative energy. For an amazing experience, try sometime consciously refusing your own negativity in the face of someone else’s. Just go silent, and then watch what happens to the person who attacked you. The odds are, you will watch this person have a change of heart right in the middle of their attack. And even if they don’t change their behavior, your new behavior will leave you feeling better about yourself.

Question: In a world where people seem to become increasingly more rude every day, how does one cope and act or react when people seem to be so cold and basically indifferent to each other?

Answer: One of the important aspects of our spiritual work is beginning to employ its principles in our everyday lives. What does this mean? Any condition we meet that is unwanted, such as a rude person, is not the cause of our stress. All conditions simply offer a momentary mirror for us in which it is possible to begin seeing what we have brought with us, within ourselves, into that moment. There is no sense in trying to change people without first changing the part of ourselves that believes our very sense of self, of well being, somehow depends upon how others treat us. Step back from your own reactions. Don’t give them your life, and you’ll discover they have a life of their own… and that you want nothing to do with it.

Dealing with the Darkness We Get From Others

Question: In my job I must deal daily with several emotionally dark coworkers. What can I do to handle this situation better, besides getting another job?

Answer: I know that it is difficult to be surrounded by toxic people; however, as difficult as this is to understand, your present work circumstance is perfect for your continuing development, if you understand how to use it. I say “how to use it” because as long as you don’t, wherever you go, you will continue to encounter “hateful” people, and your own negative reaction will use you up. Try this: Determine that when you walk in the door, your attention will remain with your reactions to these people and not on the people themselves. This shift in your attention will help you realize what it is you really need to be free of… namely, “you”! And “need” is the key word in this instance. You’ll see, if you’ll practice this approach, that it is just “you” jumping all over “you.” Once this is clear, then you can jump out of “you.”

Add Love to Your Life

Whatever we consent to embrace in life — including unwanted events that may cause us to suffer — adds to our lives a measure of love.

(Video) Love Always Prevails

posted by Guy Finley

Guy Finley explains that when you give your love to what you know is right and true, you begin to develop a relationship with that which seeded that love in you in the first place. The more you learn to sacrifice for love’s sake, the more you are given everything you need to strengthen that relationship.

Find New Happiness in Self-Wholeness
Before we can know a happiness beyond the reach of conflict or sorrow, we must ourselves be whole; for any happiness apart from self-wholeness is only half a happiness and must, in time, prove itself so.

The Clarity of Wholeness
Question: I know I have a confused and divided mind, so how can I get it into self-wholeness? Answer: Just as an electric fan cannot sort papers on a desk, giving them order, neither can the whirling mind produce Peace. To see the truth of this causes a kind of “self-disconnect,” and at once
